I'll gradually be uploading all my images from shoots this year, and I was going to do them in chronological order, but I just can't resist showing off this set which showcases the beauty of the Peak District.
I think it's particularly appropriate to begin with these, because I have recently relocated to Chesterfield. I'm originally from 'around these parts,' but have been living further south for years. Although I've also retained my southern base for the time being, I have 'returned to my roots' in the north, and I just love being back in the countryside! The Peak District is particularly beautiful, with jaw-dropping views and stunning landscapes.
This set of images was taken only about 12 minutes drive away from my home, and I think I can guarantee more trips to the Peak District in future.
I did, however, manage to get spotted on numerous occasions on this session! The set on the rocks with the blue cloth held aloft ('Rolls Royce' and 'Wild Blue Yonder') I managed to flash not only a double-decker tourist bus, but also a passing police car! Oops! I was later spotted by an entire group of tourists who had previously remained unnoticed as they were silhouetted against the sun (which means I would have been VERY visible to them!). It was only when their voices carried on the wind, and I distinctly heard the words, 'look - over there,' that I realised we had an audience. Next time I shoot in the Peak District, I will be looking for somewhere a little more private!
Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this two day sojourn into the countryside with the photographer Jamie (Phoenix555), and you can view more of his images on his Red Bubble profile here.
